I watched the talk and was led to read the article on "help vampires" by Amy 
Hoy.
I was surprised to discover this gem:
  "Note that I use he here in the general sense even though Help Vampires 
are almost exclusively male.
  It appears that male Help Vampire, drawn as it is to shiny technology, 
occupies an evolutionary niche
  that females of the species simply do not find desirable. "

I couldn't help but chuckle.  Please don't shun Amy.  :-)
